    I Faint. Every Week.

    Fainting; the loss of consciousness, the inability to remain upright and in control of one's body. You know the feelings. That awful sickness in your stomach that rises to your throat. The roaring in your ears. The spinning of the walls. The floor moves as if you're on a boat...
